Hi Experts,

We have an existing 2000 domain with users called username@uk.company.com

We are in the process of adding another remote site to this domain but the users e-mail address is username@be.company.com.

My urgent question is how can I add these 5 users to the existing domain, but set their usernames to username@be.company.com.

We seem to remember from our windows 2000 course a couple of years ago that this was possible, but memory clouds over time!

Is this indeed possible and if so how??

Got it sussed....

It can be done and the option is in AD domain and trusts:

To add additional UPN suffixes

1.Select Active Directory Domains and Trusts in the upper left pane, right-click it, and then click Properties.
 
2.Enter any preferred alternate UPN suffixes in the Alternate UPN Suffixes box and click Add.
 
3.Click OK to close the window.
 

May help others...
